“This was more like an evening out than a tour. Our guide Ross was great, very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and fun to be with. It was a little light on the history of Casco Viejo but this did not detract from our enjoyment of the tour. ...Paula C., United Kingdom – See more reviews
What To Expect
Sample the best of Panama's flavors on this Panama City food tour that gives you a delicious overview of the good life (aka the food life) here in Panama!
Wel begin our tour with a look into Panama's world-class coffee industry. Learn about coffee production from finca to cup as you sample the famous Geisha coffee, said to be both the world's finest and most expensive coffee.
With a little buzz in our step, we explore the beautifully restored UNESCO neighbourhood of Casco Viejo (also known as Casco Antiguo). We'll pass by the historic Iglesia de la Merced, as we sample another local treat: chocolate! Taste organic Panamanian chocolate from the Bocas del Toro province, where it is cultivated and produced by the local Ngöbe indigenous peoples.
From here, our food tour of Panama City will make a cultural and historical bob and weave through the cobblestone streets. Casco Viejo is a particularly photogenic neighbourhood, so make sure you've got your camera ready!
Next up is a local microbrewery, where we'll sample four of the beers currently on tap. The brewery is an open concept, which provides us with a first-hand look at how local Panamanian beer is made.
From here we'll make our way along the Malecon (the city's picturesque sea wall), to a local Seafood Market to taste Panama's national dish, ceviche. A delicate concoction of the freshest seafood, marinated until cooked in a mixture of citric lime juices, onion, and cilantro. It's a delicious dish, one you might even need to return for.
Our last stop will be a mix of old and new (much like Casco Viejo), as we enjoy a modern cocktail made with Panama's oldest and finest rum. As we sip our cocktail, we'll witness the last rays of sun leaving the rooftops of the old city, and the modern downtown city skyline come to life.
